Bought a home in 2014.
Banks is not only a great agent but an honest human being. His knowledge and expertise on the area helped us tremendously. Being in the military relocations are common and can be very difficult. Fortunately, we were able to find Banks,who also has a military background, which made it so much easier for us because he had walked in our shoes before. Having Banks by our side helped us find the perfect home that fits every one of our needs and also makes a great investment for our present and future.

Showed home in 2014 in Kings Bay Base, Saint Marys, GA 31558.
Looking for a retirement home in his area in the future. NOT pushy like some other agents. That is a big plus to me. Very helpful and when we get to the point that we need an agent Banks will be it.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Saint Marys, GA.
You can't go wrong with Banks Van Pelt, working with his wife Kerry, they will find you an amazing deal on your new home, whether renting or buying, first time, or tenth time. The process has been nothing but wonderful with buying our new home, from the initial contact whilst still in Australia, to meeting face to face weeks later. Honest, reliable, and great to be in contact with. Could not have been happier with our experience with Banks and Kerry.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Kingsland, GA.
WOW! Banks Van Pelt is amazing! We had gone through 5 realtors before finding Banks. You read that right... 5 REALTORS!!! Banks immediately put us at ease. He listened to what we wanted and set about finding the perfect property. He never tried to push us into one of his listings, never tried to get us to spend more than we were comfortable spending, and was patient with us. Banks was always professional, friendly, prompt, returned our phone calls, kept on top of things... the list goes on and on. He made the home buying process painless. I can't say enough great things about him and his office. If you are looking for a realtor who knows the area and "knows his stuff", then I highly recommend Banks Van Pelt of Military Realty of Kings Bay.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Kingsland, GA.
We were on house hunting leave when we came down for a few days. We came in on a late sat night, so I called on sun morning to leave messages with realtors to set up meetings. Banks was there and answered the phone and saw us that day. We had an idea on what we wanted and were looking for, we talked about what we wanted and set up a time to discuss houses he found for us the next day. He was knowledgeable about everything we had questions on, we were first time homebuyers and didn't know much about the whole process. He understood and only showed us houses that had almost everything we wanted or more. He didn't take us anywhere outside our price budget, or anything we weren't looking for. Banks is a very helpful understanding realtor and I know he will be our property manager for renting our house out when we have to move.

Banks is an amazing guy to work with! My Husband and I were first time buyers and he was upfront and honest about every property we looked at. He was very helpful and answered any question we had without any hesitation. If you are buying, selling or renting we definitely recommend Banks and his team at Military Realty!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Kingsland, GA.
Banks' local market knowledge and real estate knowledge made the process quite simple. Being in the military we have used multiple real estate agents in multiple cities and Banks was far and above the best real estate agent we have ever had the privilege of working with. Being retired military himself, he is especially in tune with military families needs and the process / requirements for va loans. He was very attentive from the first meeting through and after closing. The 5 star ratings are a rare thing for me because I have some pretty high standards but Banks has earned them. We had moved across country, didnt quite have a place to stay yet and in the matter of 4 hours we had a house picked, offer accepted, and he even arranged for us to move in immediately so we had a place to stay until we closed. If your looking for a home, do yourself a favor and hire Banks as your agent. You will not be disappointed!

I cannot say enough good things about Banks. Our home buying journey was a little more complicated because we had several renovations done. He was very understanding and walked us through every leg of the process. We had to bring our toddler and infant with us to several meetings in his office and Banks was always very understanding. He kept us in the loop at every step and called us at least weekly to make sure we were doing okay and to walk us through the next steps we would be taking. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone looking to buy a house but especially first time home buyers. He takes his time and teaches you about the process rather than just hurrying everything along. We will absolutely use his services if and when we sell our house or rent it out.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Saint Marys, GA.
There is a great deal to be said about an individual in todays business world that is patient, direct, and courteous. Banks is all of that and a tad more. Through my life experiences, and I'm 66 so there have been a few, Banks' efforts on my behalf are memorable. I thank him for his professionalism and responsiveness. This is a guy I could go fishing with, share a cold adult beverage, or just sit and converse. Thanks for your help Banks it is greatly appreciated.

Bought a home in 2013.
A military family of 3, new to the area we had purchased our first home. Unfortunately we did not have Banks as our realtor. And boy I wish we did. We prob would have been living in better home for an even better price. We realized our errors and went looking for a new realtor. Our first meet up with Banks and his team was because we wanted to purchase an investment property. He was very honest, informative and went above and beyond for us and took us under his wing and showed and taught us everything we needed to know about the process. We successfully purchased our first investment home and he guided us the whole way. Always available, always helpful and would NEVER let us spread too thin or put us in a position he knew we couldn't handle. Not only did he help us with the buy he helped us with the sell. We will keep working with Banks and the Military Realty family for future homes etc. My only wish is that we can take him with us when we get transferred out! :)
